It is hard now-a-days to grasp Nintendo’s motives behind of their recent decisions. So far in 2013 they have spoke out against Lets Play videos, only to change their mind and allow them. Then the petitions started rolling out to get the Wii U’s region lock taken away, and even with outstanding numbers those petitions were shot down. Now Nintendo has forbidden the streaming of SSB.s Melee on EVO.Before going any further let me assure readers that I am a Nintendo gamer first and foremost with PC coming in a 2nd. Now that that is out of the way it is time for a well deserved “WTF!” moment. The Big N has made it painfully obvious already that they are not are not competing against Microsoft and Sony in this Next-Gen era, and honestly they haven’t been competing since the Wii. I’m unsure if it is company ego, or losing of touch, or worse a combination of the two. But the fact is Nintendo is not a competitive brand anymore. I remember when Sega came out with their anti-Nintendo slogans and Nintendo didn’t take them sitting down. In fact they fired back to show that the industry was theirs, and for good reason. That spirit is gone.
